    To Kevin, Korey and family, my deepest condolences to you and your families.
    Aunty Sonia, was one in a million, so happy I got to spend quality time with her in Barbados over the last ten years. When we spent time in July 20, hangin’ out at the restaurants, beach, her house was always joyful with lots of laughs. We always had a ball…. She have always been inspiring, helpful and fun to be around. Her youthful spirit and helpful manner did not go unnoticed. Now she is a forever angel, with Sheila (Mommy) Mum & Dadads, they can keep each other’s company and stir things up in heaven….
    May they rest in peace. Love & Prayers.
